Default How much Abidec in Bath?

Hi, I have been told, and read on here, that Abidec Vitamin Drops are a good pick-me-up for lethargic tortoises, when added to their bath. Could someone tell me what dilution rate should be used please?

I used to put a pipet full in a shallow bath for a baby tortoise it worked really well

That seems like a huge amount! I used just a few drops, I guess some of it depends on the size of the container of water. Dont forget it is really for human use

It was a really small pipet so maybe that was not a good example think it was for babies. And it was in an ice cream tub if that helps get an idea

an inch in the pipette supplied with abidec (orange box version) in a shallow bath for a tort I would say up to 300g. Added to one bath daily.

Has your lethargic tort been tested for parasites?

Thanks, I added about half that (0.3ml) to her bath today and she was more active this afternoon.
